This project was actually ready for yesterday, there just wasn’t the time to sit down and put it together. Yesterday was all about family and it was wonderful.
I started with ribbon. Not my usual, but I am trying to get used to this new striped cotton ribbon, and the only way to do that is to use it. Hello honey was the ribbon color, so I coordinated the card front with the same color cardstock. It was too smooth so to the big shot it went for some embossing. Since it was a tree image, woodgrain worked great for me.
Before I forget, as I finished up with my sponging, I decided I couldn’t see the embossing like I wanted, so I lightly rubbed my inked sponge across the top of the embossing until it was dark enough. Loved how that turned out.
For this pretty tree. A single stamp in mossy meadow on watercolor paper, that is all. I wanted to soften it a bit, so I spritzed it was water and allowed the image to blend some. Sponging with sahara sand for everyone, a touch of tearing, plenty of dimensionals, and this was done. I don’t often make masculine cards, let alone an all occasion one. But here you have it.
Have a creative day!
